ASUS HYPER M.2 x16 PCIe VROC RAID Card for X299
ASUS HYPER M.2 Card, PCIe 3.0 x16, 4x M.2 PCIe 2242/60/80/110 Slots, Intel VROC Support, for ASUS X299 Motherboards
With Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC), unused CPU PCle® lanes can be assigned to storage, allowing you to create a bootable RAID array with multiple M.2 SSDs. Unlike motherboard PCH-based RAID, VROC isn't confined by the 32 Gbps DMI bottleneck, so multiple drives can be teamed to provide incredible throughput.
One Card, 4x The Bandwidth
Hyper M.2 x16 Card is designed specifically for VROC and features four M.2 slots, providing up to 128 Gbps of bandwidth per card.
Designed for Unthrottled Transfer Speed
The card is armed with a large heatsink and active fan to ensure drives are kept cool. An insane number of drives can run in parallel across multiple VROC cards to deliver staggering throughput and massive capacity for system drives, scratch disks, and anything else you want to access at warp speed. Features • Supports up to four PCIE® 3.0 M.2 drives, with transfer bandwidth up to 128Gbps.
• Supports Intel VROC technology, allowing you to use CPU PCIe® lanes to create BOOTable RAID arrays.
• Integrated blower-style fan to prevent throttling.
• Compatible with the following ASUS X299 Motherboards:
- ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME
- ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX
- ROG STRIX X299-XE GAMING
- ROG STRIX X299-E GAMING
- PRIME X299-DELUXE
- PRIME X299-A
- TUF X299 MARK 1
- TUF X299 MARK 2
• PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface, compatible with PCI Express x8 and x16 slots, support data transfer rates up to 128 Gbps.
• 4x M.2 Socket 3 with M Key design, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 storage devices support (Support PCIE SSD only).
• 1x M.2 FAN Power Switch.
• 4x M.2 access LEDs.
• 4x M.2 Screws packages.
• Dimensions: 96 x 13 x 202 mm (WxHxD).
Please note: Intel VROC Bootable with Intel M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs in conjunction with Skylake-X CPU ONLY. Redundant RAID setups such as RAID 1, 5, 10, etc, or RAID 0 (20+ drives), require an Intel VROC Key, not included, available separately.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

One of the greatest advances for PCs in recent years has been the introduction of solid-state drives (SSD). These storage drives hold information on flash memory that is managed by a processing chip called a controller. Advantages of SSDs over traditional spinning disks are numerous, from silent operation, lower power to significantly faster performance.

In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.

If you've used a computer for any duration of time you'll have come across the terms “kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte” and so on. Then there's “kilobit, megabit and gigabit” to add a bit of confusion and to top it all off you've maybe heard or read terms like “gibibyte” on occasion.
